Just a few years ago, The Medicare Advantage market was limited to only a few carriers in limited geographical areas, mostly metropolitan areas. Now, MA plans are available in nearly every U.S. county. Why the change? Consider the following:
So, is Medicare Supplement dead? Absolutely not. Medicare Advantage plans must be equal to or better than Original Medicare. They are unlike Medicare Supplement plans that pay after Original Medicare pays in exchange for a monthly premium.
Senior Market Sales, Inc. believes that the growth of Medicare Advantage plans allows agents to serve seniors not previously likely candidates for Medicare Supplement. Combined with the demographic shift to a growing senior market from 41.1 to over 60 million seniors by 2020, the health insurance market place is bigger than ever before.
The agent that is trained and equipped with a full line of Medicare Solutions products to include Prescription Drug, Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage is in a position to make more sales than ever before.
